Hard System Crash

I've had the new RX 480 Sapphire Nitro for around 2 weeks now and have been experiencing an occasional hard system crash about ounce a day. Although I can never link the problem to a specific action that crashes the PC, I think it's linked to cpu / gpu usage or perhaps overheating or driver issues as well. I've been messing around with Global WattMan in hopes of stopping an overuse problem, but every time the PC basically 'looses power', the settings completely reset. I've dug through post after post about how this is driver related and should have been fixed in 16.9.2 driver but to no success. No crash reports can be created either... Any help is much appreciated!

 

Specs:

OS: Windows 10

CPU: AMD FX-8320

RAM: 8GB

Motherboard: ASUS M5A97  LE R2.0

Graphics: 8192MB ATI Radeon RX 480 Graphics Sapphire

 

Let me know if anything is missing...
